A girl dresses in a bunny costume to earn her dad’s approval…. A boy bakes a cake and takes out his dad in the same afternoon…. These are just two of the offbeat and utterly captivating scenarios readers will find in this collection of stories inspired by narrative artwork. Nine charcoal drawings, each one hauntingly surreal, were the creative spur for eighteen different authors. Pairs of writers were sent the same image and asked to write a story to accompany it. The results are fascinating: some of the couplings are strikingly similar; others couldn’t be more different, and all make terrific reading.
“A refreshing departure from thematic short-story collections…intriguing.”—Booklist, starred review
